Mosquito Shield is the industry standard for professional mosquito and tick control. We protect against mosquitos and ticks in three ways: we kill existing pests, mask the CO2 that attracts new pests, and repel pests from your home. Our exclusive Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) is the result of more than 15 years of product research and development, and our FlexBlend spray technology maximizes MPB effectiveness.
Mosquito Shield provides you with a variety of pest control options. We can help by killing mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies, and other flying insects that are harboring ticks, as well as repelling airborne insects and preventing new pest infestations. Our treatment plans are flexible, allowing you to see the best results during peak mosquito and tick season. We add our Rain Shield blend to each spray so that treatments withstand light to moderate rain storms.
Our certified technicians have received training in product application, mosquito and tick behavior, and species identification. We train our technicians to “think like a mosquito” when evaluating properties to identify problem areas. They will also investigate weather and property conditions in order to provide you with a comprehensive pest control treatment.
More than 90% of Mosquito Shield and Tick Shield customers return year after year. We offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee (which, thankfully, mostly collects dust!). If you are dissatisfied with your first visit for any reason, we will give you a full refund.
Once you contact Mosquito Shield, you can expect a couple things:
- Your first visit is scheduled within five business days of signing up for our treatments.
- You’ll get an email before and after each technician visit.
- The treatment will be applied to your common use areas like pools, decks, patios and swing sets, and it’ll be applied to wherever the mosquitos and ticks breed and live.
- After your first visit, you’ll see a significant reduction in insects, usually within 24 hours of the first treatment.
- A licensed technician will come to your property every two weeks, depending on the mosquito population and weather. Treatments can be effective when done either 10 days apart or even 17 days apart.
Mosquito Shield was established in September of 2001. We’ve all tried to enjoy our homes’ outdoor spaces only to have our limited time outside ruined by pesky mosquitos and insects. It was obvious that the mosquito control products on the market at the time—body sprays, candles, and mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. We set out to create a true solution after becoming dissatisfied with these options. The next 15 years were spent studying the science of the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods, and treatment frequency. Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) is our own proprietary blend that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progresses. Our MPB is made with natural oils that repel current mosquitos while also repelling future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
Mosquitoes can be disruptive, to say the least. They are bothersome pests that can easily ruin your backyard barbecues and time spent tending to the landscape on your property. They not only cause itchy bites that might persist for several days, but also may carry serious diseases like West Nile virus. If you’re tired of dealing with mosquitoes around your property, mosquito spraying provides more relief than any store-bought mosquito control product in Portage.
Mosquito spraying service from Mosquito Shield is a simple three-step process designed to quickly get rid of mosquitoes living around your home and prevent more from invading in the future. The team at Mosquito Shield has developed a system that works quickly to eradicate mosquitoes while simultaneously shielding your property from future invasions. This process is not only more effective than anything you might find in a store, but also available at a much better value.
Why Mosquito Spraying?
You’ve probably tried at least one or two store-bought mosquito repellents, such as citronella candles, mosquito netting, and canned bug spray. While some of these products may be useful during a visit to a nearby park, they are insufficient to provide consistent protection for your entire property. They may, at best, provide a few hours of relief in a small area.
In contrast, Mosquito Shield offers robust protection for your entire property that lasts all mosquito season long. Mosquitoes are typically most active from April through September, and that is usually when people want to get outside to enjoy it. Instead of feeling trapped in your home this summer, choosing Mosquito Shield for mosquito spraying in the Portage area can allow you to enjoy the outdoors around your home with peace of mind.
Common Questions about Our Mosquito Services
At Mosquito Shield, we understand that you probably have many questions about how we provide our mosquito services. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our service to help you determine if it is right for you:
Q: How does our system work?
A: We use a unique three-step process to prevent mosquito bites, eliminate the mosquitoes living around your home, and prevent more mosquitoes from entering.
Q: How does Mosquito Shield prevent mosquito bites?
A: Mosquitoes detect people and pets to bite by the CO2 they exhale. CO2 masking is the first step of our process, and it effectively hides you from mosquitoes, greatly reducing the occurrence of mosquito bites on your property.
Q: How does our spray work?
A: Your Mosquito Shield technician will apply our spray all around your home, paying extra attention to the areas where mosquitoes tend to gather. The spray kills mosquitoes on contact and adheres to organic surfaces, creating an invisible barrier that deters other mosquitoes from entering.
Q: How soon will I see results?
A: We understand that if you choose to undergo mosquito spraying for your property you want to see clear results as soon as possible. The majority of Mosquito Shield customers report noticeable declines in mosquito activity around their homes in just the first 24 hours after starting with our service.
Q: Won’t the rain wash away the barrier?
A: You don’t need to worry about inclement weather interfering with your protection from mosquitoes. We add Rain Shield to our spray to ensure it holds effectively even during the rain.
Q: How does Mosquito Shield offer season-long protection?
A: The third phase of our system is consistent reapplication of our spray. We typically visit our customers every 10 to 17 days, and each spray treatment strengthens their barrier for consistent season-long protection against mosquitoes.
